Atomic Charter Skis 2013: Bringing your backcountry game to new heights, the Atomic Charter is there day and day out for as long as your legs can last. The Charter has a light Powder Rocker for float yet versatility, proven Step Down Sidewall for lifelong durability, Ti Mega Grip for rigidity, and a Lite wood core for ultimate hikeability. Let’s face it, the Charter has unlimited abilities.
For years, you had to choose between uphill and downhill performance when buying touring skis, which is like deciding whether to drink a beer or eat a burger―can't you just have both? Thankfully, Atomic is the latest company to solve your problem with the introduction of the Charter, a lightweight touring ski with serious downhill chops. Powder Rocker features camber underfoot with a moderate rocker in the tip, which combine with a do-it-all 100mm underfoot width to help you float through soft snow and hold a solid edge when you encounter the occasional icy crust or wind slab. There are also titanium inserts underfoot, which maximize torsional rigidity for increased power and edge hold, while working with the light and snappy Lite Wood core to keep weight down and boost binding retention. A Step-Down sidewall features one-piece construction to improve edge grip and durability, while notches in the tail secure skins with no fuss, meaning the days of flapping and dragging are over, meaning all you have to worry about is getting up and down with the maximum amount of fun.
